Gas Outage Map

The SWLP Gas Outage map shows the current extent of known gas outages, both planned and unplanned, within the Superior Water, Light and Power service territory. This map is updated frequently in order to reflect current conditions. Click a point or boundary on the map to see more information on a specific outage.

Why is my gas out?
Unplanned outages occur when something in the gas distribution system unexpectedly breaks and repairs are needed immediately to restore service. Depending on the severity and/or length of outage, customers affected by an unplanned outage may or may not receive an automated call notifying them of the service disruption. During unplanned outages, you may also hear a notice describing the service disruption when you call our customer service number. Once gas is restored to your area, a service tech will need access to your home or business to perform a safety check and re-light any natural gas appliances you may have.

Planned gas outages are rarely needed to make system improvements. An automated call is typically sent out to customers affected by unplanned outages prior to the start date to notify customers of the temporary service disruption. In order to receive these calls you should ensure that we have a current telephone number for your service location.

If you suspect a gas leak or smell gas, leave the area immediately and call our 24-Hour Natural Gas Emergencies line: 1-800-227-7957 or 715-394-2200.
